The PDC European Tour is a series of ten events staged across mainland Europe, each carrying a £115,000 prize fund.
The European Tour touches down in Holland, Germany, Gibraltar and Austria, with the 48-man field entertaining bumper crowds in some of darts' fastest-growing hotbeds.
The top 16 players from the ProTour Order of Merit qualify automatically for each event, with a further 20 qualifiers are derived from a qualifying event staged in the UK, eight from a European qualifying event and a further four from a separate Host Nation qualifier.
Each event is streamed exclusively live on desktop or mobile, with customers able to watch every match live at Bet365
Following the tenth event of the series, the top 32 players from the final European Tour Order of Merit will comprise the field for October's European Championship.
Ross Smith is responsible for the only nine-dart finish on the European Tour to date, with that coming against Adrian Lewis at the 2013 Gibraltar Trophy.
